Matt Carragher

Recommended Posts

He always seemed to play with a smile on his face but with total professionalism. RIP.

 

So very sad. Super player and always seemed to have a smile on his face. Have many happy

 

I was writing my comment when you put yours up, but that thing about the smile on his face is so true. Really seemed to enjoy life on the pitch and that's how I guess he'll be remembered. That's the thing with footballers, they're kind of frozen in time and remembered in their prime.

Awful news. He'll never be forgotten. The man who lifted the LDV in the rain in Cardiff. The phrase "Carragher's Dad" comes up with me and my mate whenever the man of the match goes to someone who didn't really deserve it because Matt had a stinker once but was given MoM and the only way we thought he'd got it was if his Dad had chosen the best player! But that's doing him a disservice because even if he had a bad game, you always knew that Matt would be doing his best and that as a fan, is all you ask from any player. A sad day.

Really really sad news. A great Vale player and there should be a tribute at tonight's game.

 

I still think it was an outrage Horton released him and was staggered he could only get a contract at Stafford Rangers.

Was just saying to someone on social media, full backs are probably the positions we've struggle the most(looking back) in my 25 years as a fan. There can't be too many who've clocked up 197 games at right or left back(Allen Tankard aside)? I agree I was surprised at the very least he didn't stay in league football longer apart from a short spell at Macc.

I think I've just counted up 6 derby games unbeaten during his time at Vale. Would he have been captain in all of them?

Great solid player, possibly the first player to die since I've been watching the vale?

 

RIP, condolences go out to all of his friends and family.

How did he die? Whom did he live with in the end and what are the circumstances behind it? 40 years old is no age to go...is there more to this?

 

With respect to Matt and his family it should be let known as fans did respect him and we deserve some closure. He should have something named after him at Vale park...one of the more genuine players who played with a PASSION
